  • The resolution field of a ticket a ticket indicates its current status in your workflow. It is a communication of ticket progress rather than a definitive ticket status like 'Closed', 'Open' etc.
  • Example resolutions:
    • 'Resolved' - a fix has been found, implemented, and is ready to be tested.
    • 'Unresolved – a fix has not yet been found. Staff are currently working on the issue.
    • 'Won't fix' – there are no plans to fix this issue.
  • For example, a ticket status of 'Closed' means the issue resolution has been verified and no further action will be taken on the ticket.
  1. Staff can type a resolution status when they close, modify, reply, or post a note to a ticket.
  2. Admins can also set a default resolution status for tickets that are auto-closed because they are overdue.
